Diaspora Program - Outline of a Project at the University of Pécs
The presentation introduces a project plan of the University of Pécs (UP), which intends to reinforce the institutional cooperation with Hungarians living in the world. In line with the Hungarian government's efforts aiming to involve those who are interested, the UP wants to connect not only with Hungarian local organizations abroad, but also to link them culturally through education and learning at the University of Pécs. (Pécs was the European Capital of Culture in 2010.) Educational training programs based on the needs of Hungarian foreign communities provide the basis for the professional program. Under the Diaspora Innovative Program English and Hungarian languages can be used in distance learning curriculum packages (e-learning, m-learning, blended learning). Short courses, training courses take place in the following priority areas: Hungarian as a foreign language; Hungarian history, culture, folklore and traditions; Hungarian legal system. The courses fit the Bologna system, the European Qualifications Framework to ensure interoperability among the courses, training areas and institutions.
